What is an ATA Carnet and how can I use it to take to send goods overseas temporarily?

The ATA Carnet is an international customs document that permits duty-free temporary import/entry of goods into other countries for up to one year. The only exceptions are consumable and perishable goods.

ATA carnets can be obtained for a fee from Chambers of Commerce that are members of the World Chambers Federation in around 80 countries - in Australia this is the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (phone +61 3 8662 5380).
